Seminary in Israel

This past year I had the opportunity to visit Israel on the Birthright program, and while I was there I made time to tour different seminaries, with the hopes of attending in the coming year. Machon Maayan impressed me in many ways—the campus is beautiful, the staff welcoming, and perhaps most importantly, the girls told me repeatedly how much they loved it.

Machon Maayan prides itself on really investing in each girl; the teachers spend a lot of time with the students, often inviting the girls over for Shabbos meals. Beyond that, the principal makes himself available to the girls to offer non-judgmental guidance. Academically, Machon Maayan offers multiple tiers of class levels, and includes many extracurricular options. And to top it all off, it’s located on a beautiful campus an hour outside Yerushalayim, and they offer multiple tiyulim throughout the year.

All of these things meant that I was hugely excited when I was accepted to the school. My primary goal for the coming year is to strengthen my connection to Yiddishkeit. I’m the kind of person who participates in every class discussion—and I’m ready to expand my horizons by learning in a school designed to help people from all walks of life bring their Yiddishkeit to a new level. I feel that the tailored classes, the remote campus and the structured program with so much staff support will be an optimal situation for me to grow the passion that I have for Judaism.

To this end, I have pursued many avenues of fundraising, including multiple scholarships, and I’m contributing all of the money I have saved up over the years. But it’s not going to cover the cost.

Please help me actualize the goal of going to Israel. All of the money raised goes directly to the seminary, and as such is tax-deductible. You'll receive a tax receipt for your donation.

If you’d prefer to send a tax-deductible check, mail it Machon Ma'ayan, PO BOX 15, Hightstown, NJ 08520 and mark the check with "Debra Reece scholarship" in the memo area (Thanks to Debi Reece for helping me with this).

If you are not familiar with Machon Ma’ayan, I’m happy to answer any of your questions. You can also visit the website at http://www.machonmaayan.org/ to find out more.

I greatly appreciate any support you can give—every penny counts!

Thank you,
Feigue Blejer
